What We’re Drinking – Rodney Strong Cabernet Sauvignon

Black fruit and vanilla come through on the nose. The palate offers up black currant, vanilla, and hints of brown sugar. Tannins are fine and dusty. This is a pleasant quaff that would pair beautifully with a blue cheese burger. Recommended. 87 points. DBH
